Browsing Tearsheets

Forty-five years ago I began to save pages from glossy shelter magazines. The collection expanded and shrank over the years. I never spent a dollar on a publication that didn't come back ten times over, at least. I treasure the images that remain and copied them with the iDevice that often lives in my side bag. Now and then I open the file and stare dully at one page while I'm organizing myself to do something else. I did so recently when editing inventory and found useful insights in unexpected places. It's an odd and productive meditation to study long-familiar images with eyes challenged by new demands -30-
